Pray for a miracle for Miracle!!
My friend's friend's horse is colicking pretty bad. She caught it as soon as it started, he was parking out in the crossties, and the owner thought it was a little odd but took him into the arena to lunge him. Then he parked out again and looked at his belly. So over 12 hours later, he's at the equine hospital on pain meds. It's a displacement. The vet poked a hole in his gas bubble and released a ton of gas. They were giving him time to wake up when I left the hospital, then they were going to walk him around and hope he could re-place his intestines, colon, whatever it is that is displaced. I'm not really sure. Surgery is out of the question, so they're giving him this chance to pull through, but if he fills up with gas again, he'll be euthanized. But he's fighting so hard, he's been such a good boy and doing all the best things a horse could do for himself under his circumstances. So please, please, please, pray for a miracle for Miracle!
